    Default It's Been Awhile...

    What's it been? 7 years? I bought a Harley and then moved so I put the layout away. I've been riding for the past 7 years but haven't touched the layout until last month when I finally cleaned out the train room to where I can actually go in there now, Gonna try to start working on the scenery because as you can see... there isn't any.

    I have changed a lot since the last time I was logged in here and I've upgraded my bike quite a bit too since then.

    I still ride every chance I get but I'm starting to find more time to where I can work on the layout and I've been wanting to more lately so hopefully I'll get "Back on Track". See what I did there.

    Judging from the trains on your layout, it's been sitting still since the Golden Spike

    Now you need to find an N scale replica of your bike for the layout!

    Welcome back! Nice ride. Looking forward to seeing the layout progress. Even I took a 2-year break. It's all good.

    I really like the direction your layout's headed in. Looking forward to seeing it progress when you get back to it.
